Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)

Flexible Spending Accounts are tax-advantaged accounts for medical and dependent care expenses.

Tri-Star offers administration of these Internal Revenue Code Section 125 authorized plans. Accounts are maintained for employee-contributed or optional employer-contributed funds. Payments to participants are streamlined through direct deposit, and/or use of the FSA debit card, or optionally by check. Tri-Star can accept data file feeds from your insurance carrier to auto-adjudicate claims for participants, therefore, eliminating paperwork filing by participants.

Limited-Scope FSAs are available for employers with High-Deductible Health Plans (HDHP) to offer tax advantages for qualifying dental and vision expenses. Tri-Star will work with you to design the plan or combination of plans to best serve your needs.
